The Independent Pilot Competition (IPC) is the NYTVF’s flagship, annual competition, accepting independently-produced, original television pilots and web series from around the globe. Official Selections from the IPC will screen in competition during the annual New York Television Festival each fall. IPC Official Selections are eligible for the competition's category and individual achievement awards as well as guaranteed development deals from Festival Development Partners.

 

IPC submissions should be between 4 and 60 minutes in length, and all genres are welcome (Comedy, Unscripted/Doc, Drama, Family, Animation, Short-Form, etc). If submitting an unscripted/docu-series pilot, sizzle reels and/or character tapes are recommended.
